We'll be honest, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone--but the need for clean water in South Sudan is more important than ever. Water is life, and access to it means women can start small businesses to support their families, girls can attend school, and communities can improve their overall health and economy.

You can provide clean water to people in South Sudan. All of us, walking together as a global community, will help a South Sudan village receive a new well and clean, safe water ($15,000). If we reach our goal, everyone participating in the event will receive photos of the well once complete. 

How can you help? Register today and create a fundraising page. Share your fundraising page with family, friends, and connect on Facebook. No matter how far you walk, everyone is contributing to the same goal. You can make a difference!

Select from the distance goals below during registration:

  • Day of Water: 3.7 miles (average distance women and girls walk each day for water)
  • Week of Water: 29 miles (average distance women and girls walk each week for water)
  • Travel to the Village of Aweil: 89 miles (travel with our team from our Operations Center in Wau to the village of Aweil)

Please remember these are accumulated totals. You can complete your distance goal over several weeks or two months. Choose your own activities for your challenge; they all count toward your overall distance goal. Raise money to earn badges, learn about South Sudan, and view exclusive content on your journey.
